Johnny Gaudreau ended his 15 game goal drought when he tied the game early in the third period on the power play. Though he'd miss his shootout attempt, the Flames would still win 4-3 over the Bruins on Thursday night.
Gaudreau has still been valuable since scoring a pair against Buffalo on Jan. 27th, though. He recorded eight assists, including a four game streak, during that time. On the season he now has 11 goals, leads the team in assists with 37, and ranks third on the team in points with 46. Mar 5 - 11:48 PM

Coach Bob Hartley has been very pleased with the progress of rookie Johnny Gaudreau on and off the ice.

The Flames do not play again until Tuesday in Philadelphia which happens to be very close to Gaudreau's hometown and Hartley has been very impressed with the youngster. "Johnny has been great," said Hartley. "Johnny is a very mature young individual. He’s focused. He’s a great young pro. He’s learning about the game. Off the ice, the way he handles media, the way he handles himself, is great. I have no doubt in my mind he was ready for this." Gaudreau has 15 goals and 44 points this season in 61 games but has been slumping a bit of late with only one assist and a minus-six rating in his last five games. Maybe some home cooking will help break him out of the slump.

Johnny Gaudreau will be wearing extra protection on his arm after narrowly avoiding a bad injury.

Gaudreau was sliced on his wrist by Jets forward Bryan Little's skate on Monday, but fortunately the cut wasn't deep. He doesn't want to test his luck again. "It's my own fault. The equipment managers here give everyone those little wrist guards, they're pretty much skate-proof and help you from getting cut, and I was never used to wearing them and didn't think it would happen to me," Gaudreau said. "That's part of hockey, so I'm going to start wearing those."

Johnny Gaudreau is on a three-game point streak heading into Thursday's game.

Johnny Gaudreau reportedly made an extra $212,500 for participating in the All-Star Game.

Gaudreau was always selected to participate in the skills competition, but he initially wasn't going to play in the game. When Sidney Crosby pulled out, creating a vacancy, there were initial reports that he would play, but it was soon announced that the NHL would simply leave Crosby's spot unfilled. Then the NHL later decided to let Gaudreau play after all. Gaudreau thinks the act of playing in the All-Star Game itself, as opposed to being selected for the skills competition, is what qualified him for the bonus, but he wasn't really sure because he hadn't asked his agent since he found out he was playing.

Johnny Gaudreau scored twice to help Calgary get past Buffalo 4-1 on Tuesday.

"Johnny Hockey" picked up right where he left off before the All-Star break-piling up points. He now has four points in his last three games and 37 total in 47 games played. The All-Star is as good as advertised. Josh Jooris picked up his fourth game winning goal of the year which leads all Flames players this season. Joe Colborne added the other goal for Calgary. Jiri Hudler also picked up two assists.

Johnny Gaudreau got an opportunity to play on a line with fellow rookie Filip Forsberg during the All-Star Game.

Gaudreau assisted on both of Forsberg's goals. The two are among the frontrunners to win the Calder Trophy this season. "Yeah, he's a skilled hockey player," Gaudreau said of Forsberg. "It was a lot of fun playing with him and getting a chance to play with a whole bunch of other guys. I like how they rotated a few guys on our line, so us young guys got to play with a lot of different people."

Johnny Gaudreau will play in the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday.

There were initially some reports that he was included as an injury replacement for Sidney Crosby, then he was out, but he’s officially in now, which makes sense because Team Toews would’ve been playing the game a man short. Gaudreau is also participating in the breakaway challenge during the skills competition on Saturday. Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points this season.

Johnny Gaudreau said that being a healthy scratch early in the season worked.

Gaudreau played in the first five games of the season but was struggling as he had yet to get a shot on net when coach Bob Hartley decided to sit him in the press box. "That was pretty eye-opening for me," Gaudreau said. "I think I was pretty nervous (about) getting sent down (to the minors). I went (five) games without a point or without producing offensively. I came back and was pretty concerned about getting sent down. Ever since that game, I kind of just took off from there." He certainly has as Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points with 97 shots on goal in the 41 games since the benching.

Johnny Gaudreau won't play in the All-Star Game after all.

He was originally expected to fill Sidney Crosby's spot, but the league decided to keep it vacant. Gaudreau is in Columbus either way for the rookie skills competition, which makes the decision to keep the slot vacant interesting.
Jan 23 - 5:57 PM

Johnny Gaudreau has been included on the All-Star Game roster.

Johnny Gaudreau recorded an assist in a 4-1 victory over Arizona.

Gaudreau has 13 goals and 33 points in 43 games in 2014-15. Rookies can be particularly inconsistent, but that hasn't been the case with Gaudreau so far. Since recording his first point on Oct. 19, he hasn't endured a point drought of more than three contests.

Johnny Gaudreau is attempting to trademark his nickname, Johnny Hockey.

Agent Lewis Gross and his client, Gaudreau, want some control over what was being sold with his nickname on it to prevent derogatory items from being associated with Gaudreau. The story has taken off though, to the surprise of Gaudreau and Gross. "More than anything (Gaudreau) was just embarrassed by all the attention it got," Flames assistant GM Craig Conroy said. "He just wanted to keep it low key and pretend it didn't even happen. I said, 'Well, it did happen, so now just deal with it.'"
